Going Home by Amanda McIntyre

Kicking off our Sapphire Falls Kindle World Halloween release is author Amanda McIntyre, whose book is titled Going Home. Amanda was kind enough to allow me to use her characters, Kasey and Cooper, in Going Back to Find You

Welcome, Amanda, and thanks again for helping Jason find Liz and for helping Liz find her way home.


Kasey Seagren left Sapphire Falls in search of finding her fame and fortune through her music. Tragedy at home forces her to return to face her past and in going home, she discovers that maybe what she needs has always been in her own backyard.

A home-grown country boy, Cooper Evans had always placed home, family and his friends as a priority in his life. But his heart was stolen years before by a young woman with a gypsy’s heart and he never fully recovered. Now she’s back and he’d determined to end her wandering and prove that in his arms is where she belongs.


She looked up, squinting through the last dredges of dusky sunlight at her roadside savior. His face was rugged, but his eyes were soft, kind as they searched her face. He seemed familiar. “Do I know you?” she asked, trying to place him in the jumbled fog in her brain.

“My name is Cooper. Cooper Evans.”

He glanced over his shoulder, and a fine shoulder it was in that dark blue flannel shirt that made his lapis blue eyes seem even darker. His hair, falling just above his collar, had the most adorable curl behind one ear.
She blinked. Why would she notice something like that?

“I saw your truck as I was coming across the field. Thought you’d gone on into town. I have to admit, the last I checked the road I didn’t see anything coming.”

“No, no, it was my fault. I made a U-turn.” She sighed. “And I was tuning the radio and not paying attention.”

He frowned. “That explains a lot.”

“I’m sorry…what was your name again?” Kasey’s brain went on full alert, followed by other parts of her too long out of use.

“Cooper Evans, ma’am.”

Ma’am? She swallowed. Being on the road had been hard, but she hoped not too hard. “Do I look old enough to be a ma’am?” she asked, trying to scramble to her feet. Cooper Evans. This couldn’t be the same guy. “Did you say you lived around here?”

“My farmland butts right up to the city limits of Sapphire Falls, yes, m—”

She held up her hand to halt the phrase. “Don’t. Say. It.” With his help, Kasey made it to her feet and winced—not from the pain of the injury, but from the sight of her truck.

“I can maybe get a tow truck out here. You know anybody in Sapphire Falls?”

“I do, but I know she’s busy…working at the diner.”

He nodded. “Okay, the least I can do is get you back into town.”

“That’d be great,” she said with more enthusiasm than she truly felt.

Kasey watched, dabbing her temple as he pulled her backpack and guitar case from the truck and hauled them up into the cab of his combine. Her baby blue pick-up was sorely battered. And she was stuck in this god-forsaken place—during Halloween—without transportation. Could this get any worse?

“Come on, I’ll help you up.”

She studied the mammoth machine “Seriously? You’re taking me in that thing?”

“Do it all the time.” He gave her a smile that, okay, might have caused places to clench that she’d forgotten knew how.

Likely some type of post-traumatic stress.
